There’s a great display of books on the 2nd floor of Llandaff library, handpicked by your lecturers for the current CSAD Level 5 Illustration project . . . here’s a virtual display, but even better that you drop into the library and browse the actual books.
Fifty Years of Illustration: This book charts contemporary illustrations rich history: the rampant idealism of the 1960s, the bleak realism of the 1970s, the over-blown consumerism of the 1980s, the digital explosion of the 1990s, followed by the increasing diversification of illustration in the early twenty-first century.

Inspiration of Book: Redefine your notion of what a book can be with Inspiration of Book, a collection of over 150 of the most imaginative and innovative books ever made. Some of the books within are crafted from outlandish materials, such as wood, fabric, coconuts or clam shells; others are designed in a way that is counter-intuitive to how most of us envision a book, like books with glow-in-the-dark pages, Snoop Dogg’s smokeable book and the world’s first fully edible book. These books provoke the senses, inspire memories and stimulate our emotions.
Crafting Narrative: Story telling through objects and making.
Pen & Ink: Tatoos & the stories behind them Do Hu Suh Drawings
These new books are currently on display on the 2nd floor of Llandaff library. Follow the links to the library catalogue for more information or to place a reservation. Available to borrow from 24th June.
Lots of exciting new journals have come into the library this week. Amongst them is Modern Painters a monthly journal that analyses international contemporary art and culture – from painting and sculpture to photography, film, architecture, design and performance.
One of the articles is a richly illustrated article about Natalie Frank’s fairy-tale project, Tales from the Brothers Grimm: Drawings. Writer Linda Nochlin tells us these goache and chalk pastel drawings on rough paper are “Grimm’s fairy tales before the PC censors got ahold of them … The violence and eroticism of the fairy-tale images are definitely not meant for children.”
Another artist exploring sexuality as part of his work is Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, an internationally established artist who has courtyed controversy with the content of his work. Edward Dimsdale’s article in contemporary photography journal Hotshoe discusses Marvelous Tales of Black Ink, the artist’s most recent publication.
